My name is Carlos de la Barrera. I'm a Chilean Architect from U. Mayor, Chile. I moved to Barcelona in 2003 to learn biological strategies applied to architectural design. In 2005 I finished my master’s degree and begun study programming to apply Genetic Algorithms and Emergence behaviours in Architectural Design.

In the year 2008, I won the Rafael Escola scholarship to Research and Develop Genetic Algorithms. During my PhD, I developed a series of mathematical models based on Darwin Natural Selection to evolve optimal solutions at different architectural scales: Urban design, Building design, Space layout floor plans and Sustainability optimization.

I founded designemergente to provide optimal solutions to design problems through Artificial Intelligence.
